MONTREAL (CP) Organizers of the 1976 Summer Olympic Games have received assurance from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that it has no intentions of pulling the Games out of Montreal. The assurance came from Lord Killanin, president of the IOC, who was in constant tele- phone communications Fri- day with Roger Rousseau, president of the organizing committee. Killanin is ex- pected to issue a full state- ment explaining the situation today, a spokesman for the organizing committee said. Killariin, who attended an IOC meeting in Amsterdam Friday, also assured Rousseau that neither he nor IOC vice-president Willi Daume of West Germany intended immediate visits here to investigate the slow.- down of Olympic construction caused by a six-week strike of iron workers. There were reports that Killanin was considering call- ing an emergency session of the IOC and that Daume had scheduled a visit to Montreal for Jan. 20 A spokesman for the organ- izing committee said that for the time being, Rousseau and Killanin will remain in cons- tant touch until the Montreal situation returns to normal. About iron workers in Quebec began a strike Nov. 27 and earlier this week, it forc- ed a complete shutdown of construction at the seat, Olympic stadium area. There was speculation the Games would have to be cancelled or con- ducted in modified facilities if the dispute was not settled by next week. A special committee of the Quebec national assembly will meet Tuesday to consider legislation to get the strikers back to work. Labor Minister Jean Cournoyer has said the were in danger of cancellation if the strike was not settled by next week. The strikers voted Thursday night to continue their work stoppage in support of cost-of-living wage increases. They originally were after a 50-cent-an-hour increase but, following wage increases to some trades in the construc- tion industry Jan. 1, the iron workers want a raise. There were reports that some West German cities and the Shah of Iran were ready to step in and willing to play host to the 1976 Games if Montreal should be forced to cancel. A report from Dusseldorf, West Germany, said that sev- eral cities in the Ruhr area had offered to band together to take the Games off Montreal's hands.

Alberta has just received an extra billion dollars in oil revenues. Yet some of the province's most needed workers are forced to live on poverty- level pay. Our hospital employees. As a result, Alberta hospitals are becoming dangerously short-staffed. Some are at only 65% capacity. And your health services are suffering badly. The provincial government is unwilling to pay hospital employees a living wage. So they simply cannot provide for their families. Or cope with inflation. Consequently, they're leaving hospital work in growing num Jbers. Many go to B.C., where hospital pay rates are much fairer. A cleaner can make a month more. Alberta hospital workers want, and deserve, similar rates. They badly need an increase now. But.the province is holding back. Even though that extra money is in the treasury. The government is being very unfair with hospital workers. But they're also seriously jeopardizing your health care. So we're asking you to support our campaign for fair treatment. To us it's a matter of livelihood. To you, it may be a matter of your hospital service. Tell them you care about your health Canadian Union of Public Employees. hospital workers and their families.
